Ready to be a Roo?

Let's make it official for Fall 2019!

Students planning to attend the University of Missouri–Kansas City need to pay a confirmation fee, which acts as official acceptance of the offer of admission and a student's intent to enroll at UMKC.


The freshman confirmation fee is $150 and is due by May 1.

The confirmation fee covers New Student Orientation fees for freshmen (guests have a separate fee), new student and first-year programming (including Convocation and Welcome Week) and the UMKC OneCard.


The transfer confirmation fee is $50 and is due by May 1.

The confirmation fee covers new student programming and the UMKC OneCard. Students attending Transfer Student Orientation will pay an additional Orientation registration fee.
